So you’ve purchased Lotos & you’re ready to get started – great! When you purchase an Lotos license from ThemeForest & download the theme package, you will receive a zipped folder titled “Lotos-A-Blog-Theme”.
Unzip this first folder.
Within the unzipped theme package, you will find a number of folders such as demo content, documentation, logo image files, etc. There is also 1 additional zipped folder within, titled “lotos.zip“.
Important: DO NOT unzip this “lotos.zip” folder! This particular .zip folder should remain zipped.
“lotos.zip” is the main theme.
Within your WordPress Dashboard, navigate to Appearance > Themes. Click the “Add New” button at the top-left of the page > Click the “Upload Theme” button at the top. Click “Choose File” > find your zipped “lotos.zip” file > Click the “Install Now” button.
Once the theme is successfully installed on your WordPress, you can “Activate” it via the installation page or via Appearance > Themes to switch over and begin using your Lotos theme!
Please note: If you try installing the entire zipped theme package or another incorrect file, you’ll likely receive this error message:
“The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet. Theme install failed.”
If you receive this error message, please be sure that you’re installing the ZIPPED file titled “lotos.zip“.
